Alberta’s $2B CCS plan: Cash Confiscation & Sequestration
Let’s put this scheme in some perspective with some easy-to-understand graphics. Attentive readers of FoGT will have heard mention of the cabal known as the IPCC, a secret society bent on introducing world socialism, funded by the UN with dollars confiscated from unwitting citizens. Using its access to advanced research tools, FoGT has uncovered secret documents that reveal the funding for this nefarious plot. Between 1998 and 2007 the IPCC received nearly 95 million Swiss Francs, from various world governments: that’s about $86 million Canadian dollars, of which Canada contributed approximately CAD$2.8 million.
Now, those nit-picky alarmists will likely object that comparing the Government of Alberta with the IPCC is like comparing apples with oranges. So we’ll cleverly pre-empt such objections by using said fruits in our graphics.
Of course, such a graphic is highly misleading since it takes no account of population. So:
Frankly, we are a little disappointed that our colleagues at the Friends of Science have not examined this issue more closely. Perhaps there are conflicts of interest that--perfectly understandably--force them to exercise discretion. Some of the FoS luminaries may, after all, be shareholders of Swan Hill Synfuels ($285 million grant), Enhance Energy Inc ($495 milion) , Shell Canada ($745 million), or TransAlta Corporation ($436 million) and it would be highly irregular for them to express opinions on the merits of these projects. Also, some FoS members may have close ties to Alberta’s governing Conservatives and it could be personally embarrassing for them to criticize their friends in high places.
